Nunes had the following to say about his latest offer.
"Coach Toby Neinas our Inland Empire recruiter for San Diego State has been by my side and very supportive about my football skills since he first saw me last spring on campus when I was a sophomore," Nunes said. "He was very positive and represented San Diego State with great class. I had an instant liking to him.
"Kevin O'Connell had a solid season for them this past season at quarterback," Nunes said. "He threw for over 3,000 yards for an average of 255 yards a game passing and he attempted 439 pass so I can tell they like to throw the ball down there.
"I wish him (O'Connell) well at the NFL Combine that he is currently participating in," Nunes said. "I'm planning to make it to there for their junior day that they are hosting again in the near future."
Nunes was co-League Offensive Player of the Year as a junior after he threw for 2,105, 14 touchdowns and only five interceptions in 216 attempts. He completed 124 of his passes hitting on 57.4 percent.
San Diego State joins Colorado, Arizona, Stanford and Hawai'i, as teams that have already offered Nunes a scholie.
UCLA, Cal, Oregon State, and Notre Dame have also shown early interest in Nunes.
